12# To clarify, this isn't the entire suite of modules considered "toolchain"
13# It's not even all modules needed to build ext/
14# It's just the source paths of the (minimum complete set of) modules in ext/
15# needed to build the nonxs modules
16# After which, all nonxs modules are in lib, which was always sufficient to
17# allow miniperl to build everything else.
